Vibrant plans for Giving & Living 2016

It was a bumper Summer in the West Country, and the Autumn sunshine continued to attract tourists this year. Visitor numbers were up and so was visitor spending. With tourist attractions and retailers now looking to restock with the latest in gifts and homewares for 2016, the Giving & Living trade show in January will be their next port of call. Giving & Living is the largest

Home & Gift trade show in the South West. This vibrant show is packed with a year’s worth of ideas that sell. As the first show of the season, Giving & Living provides visitors with the opportunity to see the very latest new and exclusive 2016 gift and homeware product ranges before anyone else, and with Easter falling so early in 2016, it is perfectly timed for retailers to stock up for the year ahead. Next year’s show, which takes place at the Westpoint Exhibition

Glebe Cottage

Centre, Exeter, and runs from Sunday January 17 to Wednesday January 20, will bring together up to 300 exhibitors and more than 4000 retail buyers. The coast and tourism are huge driving forces for the South West

economy, so it’s no wonder that this show has always had a fine selection of products ideal for this market. Giving & Living is undoubtedly the best show in the country for buyers keen to order coastal merchandise – every year launching a wave of new ideas which are eagerly snapped up by those who successfully target the holidaymaker. To showcase this market, and new for 2016,

Giving & Living has created a special area dedicated to the Coastal market. See the beach towels and bags from Sea Kisses, drysuits from Typhoon Ltd, wetsuits from TWF International Ltd, surfboards and beach goods from KandyToys, flags and souvenirs from John Brady Agencies, gifts and souvenirs from Nauticalia, and much more. Other show features include a Newcomer’s area which showcases new

exhibitors from the UK that have never before exhibited at a trade show so it’s a great opportunity to spot new companies and products.

Sage Green Designs 30 Giftware Review & Home Interiors November / December 2015

The Designed & Made in Britain area is where you’ll find unusual products of high quality with a distinct local flavour, reflecting the UK’s unique heritage, such as the handmade lampwork bead jewellery from Beach Art Glass. If you’re after products with a strong ethical and/or

environmental background, the Naturally Trail will lead you to exhibitors such as Black Yak and Glebe Cottage. In addition to the wide range of products available, the Enhance area will inspire you to add new items to your offering, and source services that could help you do

business more profitably. Amongst the familiar faces at the show, such as Puckator, Chown China, Talbot Fashions and Gringo Imports, there will also be more than 50 companies new to

the show. For the first time you can see the range of leisure goods from

Wilton Bradley, the gift, trend and joke articles from Out of the Blue, the beautiful silver and gemstone jewellery from Silver Arcade, and the decorative homewares, scented gifts and nightwear from Powell Craft. Giving and Living has it all. From gifts that can be personalised for

your venue, to those that reflect the UK’s unique heritage, there’s a huge range on show - from 50p pocket money gifts to one-off British made gallery pieces. The show presents a fantastic selection of products for retail buyers, whether the outlets are large tourist attractions looking for high volume, or small independent outlets looking for that little something that is unique and different.
